While our primary mission is to fund research for safer and less toxic treatments, helping families is also a key reason that AWOCCF exists. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the entire family. Arms Wide Open is dedicated to helping families emotionally, spiritually and financially.
Here are some ways that we assist families.
• Arms Wide Open hosts Hope and Healing Bereavement Retreats and Online Workshops for families who have lost a child to cancer.
Arms Wide Open hosts Helping Hands, a crowdfunding platform that allows childhood cancer families to raise funds without paying credit card and platform fees.
